✱✱Book Review✱✱ Rebel Obsession by Elle Thorpe


Beaten, drugged, and tied, I sink beneath the surface.

Water invades my mouth. It seeps down my throat and fills my lungs until breathing becomes a desperate memory.

My only hope are the three men who know the evil of my attacker.

If I make it through this, we can’t fail again. A murderer needs to be found. Caleb needs to pay for what he did to me.

He has another woman held hostage, bound, and gagged.

But she’s not the only one.

There are others who will befall the same fate as me if Caleb and his friends aren’t stopped. With the police in his pocket, there’s no one to save them but us.

Drowning gives a girl a lot of time to think about her revenge.

Until it becomes obsession.

Rebel Obsession is an adult #whychoose romance, meaning the main character has more than one love interest. This book contains romantic suspense/dark themes that may trigger some readers. It contains a male/male storyline. It is the second book in an ongoing trilogy and cannot be read as a standalone. Book 1 of this series is Rebel Revenge.    
Momma Says: 5 stars⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

This trilogy gets more twisted with each page, and Elle Thorpe does cliffies like nobody's business! I'm loving Rebel and her guys, and the more I read, the more I want to read. I just can't get enough of these characters.
Rather than get into details and spoil things, because there are a lot of ways to do just that, I'll tell you what I love about the Saint View world, including Rebel's story. I heard someone say that the #whychoose dark romance isn't realistic. Well, duh! That's the beauty of it. It may stretch the suspension of disbelief, but I'm okay with that. There's enough realism in everyday life. Rebel and her guys may face some pretty dark and dangerous stuff, but I love getting lost in their world for a few hours - white-knuckling my Kindle when things get particularly intense and fanning myself when things get crazy hot. And yes, Elle's books have both of those and everything in between.
Now that I've avoided spoilers, I'll sum it up by saying Rebel Obsession runs through every shade of darkness as well as getting hot enough to set your Kindle on fire. So, if you enjoy the trope, start with Rebel Revenge and spend some time in Saint View. I know I can't wait to see where things are gonna go in the conclusion of the trilogy.
